Logisim home page


Logisim is an open-source, cross-platform tool that provides a graphical environment for designing and simulating circuits. It is used widely for classes such as introductory surveys of computing, sophomore-level computing systems courses, and upper-division computer organization and architecture. The software is in the midst of heavy development; revision should be complete by Summer 2011, with intermediate versions released along the way. In this BOF led by Logisims primary developer, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss how they use circuit simulation in their courses (if at all), to provide feedback on recent developments, and to discuss openly directions for Logisims near-term future.
